Hi there...I can understand your concern. From your complaints it looks like your son could be infested with lice causing pediculosis capitis. Treatment for pediculosis capitis is application of 1% permethrin over the scalp, 1 hour before head bath. It should be done only once. But kindly confirm the diagnosis once by a dermatologist before going for treatment.
